HAZARD, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: One step 'twixt loss and gain
Last Line: To look below.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Happiness; Joy; Delight

One step 'twixt loss and gain!
The summit to attain
So near the brink of pain
Hath joy to go --

So steep the precipice,
So frail the footing is,
'Twere death to panting bliss
To look below.
